Pledge Offering to St. John’s
How can I offer my pledge of support to St. John’s?
The best way to give to St. John’s is to become involved in one of our ministries and to make a financial pledge. The pledge is a prayerful and spiritual statement of intentional commitment, not a legal obligation. As such, it reflects your personal circumstances and your spiritual life and, thus, may be changed as your circumstances change.
Every year in November the members of St. John’s are asked to make a pledge to the church’s annual operating budget. Those joining St. John’s during the year may pledge at any time by filling out a pledge card and returning it to the parish office. Pledges can be paid weekly, monthly, or annually, in cash, by check, or with the gift of appreciated stock. Although the biblical standard is the tithe, the size of the pledge is less important than your willingness to make a financial commitment to support God’s mission at St. John’s.
Once you pledge, you will receive an acknowledgement letter from the Treasurer. All households will receive quarterly reports and a year-end tax statement summarizing your giving to St. John’s. If you choose to fulfill your pledge through cash gifts, please use envelopes with your name, so that your gift may be recorded.
In addition to pledges to the General Fund, St. John’s welcomes gifts to the various fundraising effort for outreach ministries, the Flower and Memorial Funds.
